Sri Lankan Airlines has enjoyed great success at the Sri Lankan Tourism Authority Awards. The airline won the prestigious "Airline of the Year" award for its continued contribution to inbound tourism traffic. This is the third year in a row that Sri Lankan Airlines has won this award. This continued success has led to the airline being inducted into the award's Hall of Fame.
Sri Lankan Airlines was also successful in two other categories: promoting inbound tourism, and best print media presentation in-flight magazine. This record haul was celebrated by all associated with the airline. Other recent awards successes include recognition of the superb in-flight catering by the International Travel Catering Association.

The awards won were for environmental sustainability and the airline's innovative food waste sterilisation systems. The airline's catering programme is so successful that Sri Lankan Airways have begun producing food for other airlines.
